Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, very relaxed and unstuffy, fantastic breakfast with beautiful views of the coastline and mountains, lovely antipasti provided in the evening with cocktails on the terrace, spacious room with private balcony and sea view. Best hotel we've stayed in and a fantastic start to our honeymoon.
The only drawback was the quite long walk to and from the town - pleasant on the way down but uphill on the way back, but a shuttle bus was provided by the hotel and there are local buses too.
Although the hotel is situated somewhat outside the main Taormina area the friendly staff and excellent views coupled with good fare in the restaurant more than made up for the distance. The suite was comfortable and clean. I would however suggest that the shuttle service to the city centre be more frequent. We will certainly return
The view, hospitality and breakfast were outstanding. The lighted and clear mirror in the bathroom made everybody look beautiful. I also liked having a be-day. It was very quiet because it was a long walk from the action of the town.
I didn't like that the only view to the outside was through the door, no other windows in the small room. It was a long walk from town.
Gorgeous setting and very friendly and welcoming staff
The breakfast was excellent and imaginative, with local specialities. Shuttle bus to Taormina was very useful.
The view! The friendliness of the staff.
Very welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. A glass of wine offered on arrival is a great attention. Our room and bathroom were very clean, elegant and comfortable. The view from the private mini terrasse and from the main terrasse of the hotel is astonishing. The rooms are equiped with SKY TV, meaning a great choice of channels. The value for money was excellent.
No, but maybe because we stayed only one night. For people who stay longer, it might be a bit far from the city centre and they might miss a swimming pool. However, they have good deals with three private beaches and a system of free shuttle to get there or to the city center.
The level of service and the view from the terrace
The staff were extremely friendly and attentive - very welcoming and helpful. Made our honeymoon stay very pleasant (Thanks, Paolo, Antonio, Alicia, Luca!). Great terrace, very well appointed rooms, very useful complimentary bus service. Gemma and Pram
this one is a very special hotel. In many ways it is like everything you see and experience has an extra something. You get everything you'd expect - we had a large room overlooking the bay - a big bathroom - a fridge bar - beautiful clean and stylish decor - fluffy white towels.... and then there's the service, personal, friendly.Great value for low rates.
